Duck feathers

Please double the output of feathers from mill & have mariner give feathers as well. Too hard to make his orders when we only get 1 feather in 4 hours time. 12 quilts requires 24 feathers at 4 hrs per each feather is 6 days...or something like that...those of us not in a co-op just need a bit of help to fill his ridiculous quantities. Either that or cut mariners quantities in half. Thanks!!

    Easier to join a co-op and get them. Without a co-op, it's near impossible. also you can purchase stuff in the prize tent to cut the time down on mill.

    I must say Duck Feather is the most useless item in the game.

    It only has 1 purpose. When the game wants to slow us down and when.

    I don't think it will ever be dropped from Marine, else nobody will visit the Mill anymore...

    The best, most helpful thing that can be added to/changed for FV2CE is to FIX the current DAILY glitchessuch as entire frozen farm; from water to foraging areas that we players are plagued with b4 getting all huffed up about new Events. I play on 2 platforms, Android & Win8.1, no Win10 here. To tout urself as the Most Popular, u might want to re-think ur slogan & change it to "The Most Likely to Not Work Properly-Game", or something more accurate. Also a link somewhere on the website of FB page for a authentic update for Win8.1 would be Wonderful; I have requested such a thing 5 times from your Support Team, they have never even addressed nor mentioned this in a reply to me. This is almost getting to the point of hardly worth the effort!!

    I have to say it's completely ridiculous. You upgrade the Mill just to get more lemons and eggs. I can get that by just buying more trees, getting geese, and buying a pin. You get 1 feather and 1 cedar, and you have no other way of getting them. I went to the mill back to back to back one day, and the minute I made a couple times, all my cedar and feathers were gone. This is ridiculous. Then I was checking the FV2CE wiki. The Mill is the one place where no farm hands help you at all. That's just crazy. Adding the ducks should give you more feathers or something.

    I have a feeling the design team only likes cats and dogs...

    I'm at the point where I avoid mill-based items now

    Mallard Mill definitely needs farm hands for extra items, especially feathers. The Red setter gets 3 quartz, Siamese cat gets 2 tin, hound dog gets 2 trout or 2 blackberries, yellow tabby gets 2 chives, but NO farm hand gets anything extra at the mill. Ridiculous!

    Fishing cat gets 2 feathers and wonder the whippet gets 2 cedar at the mill.

    That’s right Paulas! I use those two everytime I work the mill.

    Fishing cat and whippet won from event..?

  • paulaspaulas Posts: 110Registered User Cloudylicious

    @Pavani779 yes they were both won on leaderboards.

    Where can I find "fishing cat" or "wonder whippet"? I have several cats and dogs but none with those names.

    @Kperedo those animals they are taking about were won in leaderboard, winning the upgrade version

    Feathers are a real problem when the only way to get even two at a time is to get the "correct" leaderboard animal.

    First, one has to be willing to play the leaderboard, knowing that it is often a futile measure.

    Second, once one takes the dive and sacrifices any sense of time or sanity, one has to be lucky enough to not get a group that has keyhackers, other cheaters, or people who spend keys like water (read: also cheaters) to actually finish in the top five. And then do so, twice, in the same event.

    And third, if one manages to actually pull this off, then one has to hope that you won the right animal that actually gives you the bonus you want, and not one that you don't care about or already have. (Because you have no idea what, if any, special properties the leaderboard animal will have until and unless you win it, and even then there's no guarantee that the animal will keep those properties indefinitely.)

    Which means generally people are stuck one stupid duck feather at a time.

    Nice to know you guys listen. Two leaderboard animals in row give 2 feathers giving more people a chance to win the animals and you now tell us what the upgraded animal gives ahead of time so that if we don't need it we don't have to compete if we don't want to. Thanks

    Using Phantom Cat at the mill will get you two duck feathers, guaranteed!

    The thing in the coop, most of them never help. I never been helped of even if I asked once. I reached my level (nearing 40) without the help of anyone. I had changed co op 3x but it is the same. I feel bad about it but well this is a game. For a lot of admins in this modern FV, it is take your own risk atittude when you joined into their co op. They are not welcoming. It's like be quiet otherwise you will be kick out. I just wish admins will be happy to have a regular, helpful and active player members.

    I’ve played the mallard mill several times and before I click it shows the feathers I might get but once I start adding the helpers it disappears and eggs or lemon show up. I’ve got a task of 12 quilts which is 24 feathers! I’ve been unable to get them and requesting help from co-op is useless, either up the output of feathers or lower the number of items needed!

    Deberían poner un pájaro tipo loro de jornalero para que diera plumas extras. Y si ponen como premio de evento un loro ya sería lo más. Así varían un poco los jornaleros, ya que siempre son gatos y perros
